A Framework for Optimized Allocation of Control Functions to a Distributed Architecture 2005-01-1285

In this paper we present the results of a project that concentrates on the design of distributed embedded systems for control-related applications. The OPTMAP (Optimal Mapping of Virtual Control Functions to a Distributed Architecture) framework supports the function allocation based on given constrains involving a feasible solution. The control systems we will consider use a time-triggered paradigm for sensor reading and event-driven behavior for inter-processor communication. Sensor values are read at fixed periods in time and data processing occurs after the control unit receives the proper message. The aim of the project is to get an optimized mapping which minimizes information traffic on the network and guarantees that all processing units are able to handle the distributed control functions in real time.
